Haines senior Nattaphon Wangyot–who self-identifies as a girl–advanced to the state finals in the 100-meter and 200-meter events. He won fifth place in the 100-meter dash and third place in the 200-meter. In both events, he competed against girls as young as ninth grade.
“It’s the DNA. Genetically a guy has more muscle mass than a girl, and if he’s racing against a girl, he may have an advantage.”
No kidding. Although most of the girls the reporter selected to quote were supportive.
Just curious as to whether a student with mediocre grades could take advantage of Affirmative Action programs at universities by claiming to identify as one of the favored minority groups.
